Cannot Load Hexen Cd Anymore After Tsop

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

After successfully TSOPing my 1.4 xbox, I can no longer load the Hexen disc. Is this normal?

I am running unleash X as my dashboard. I was able to load  the Hexen disc to complete my initial TSOP, but not anymore. Any thoughts?

It has nothing to do with that as literally everyone else who tsop flashes and runs Unleash X can read anything if their dvd drive works. Your dvd drive is nearing 20 years old. It's most likely on its way out as everyone else's is. You will be better served by FTP'ing anyways.

Hi Admin,

Thank you for your reply. The DVD drive reads my retail XBOX games and audio CDs perfectly. So I don't think the DVD drive is failing.

It only has trouble reading the Hexen dvd. I was able to load the Hexen DVD during the initial TSOP stage. After TSOP, the Hexen is no longer loading.

I prefer to use the DVD to repair or fix any issues in the future if my HD fails. Any ideas?

Your logic is pretty flawed. 
You think your drive is good because it reads pressed games and pressed audio cds perfectly, yet won't read your burned dvd. 
You're describing a failing dvd drive to the letter. If you'd prefer to use the dvd drive, you may have to purchase another or you can try the pot tweak for your drive.

You could try making a new Hexen disk and when your burning it set the write speed as slow as the burner will go , Also some USB style DVD/CD writers are slower than built in one's.

I also have a preference for Verbatim DVD-r disk's but you may need to try different brands and types DVD-r, DVD+r, DVD-rw  it can be hit and miss.

As Admin has posted now that you can network in to the Xbox that's the most reliable way to get files on your Xbox.

And as it's been mentioned before the all the drives are getting to the end of there life and the 1st sign is having problems reading copied disk's and slightly marked ones.

Hi All,

Thank you all for replying. I resolved my issue. Turns out that I needed to wait for a while (at least 40-60 seconds) for my Hexen disc to boot from the dvd drive.

There is nothing wrong with my DVD drive or the Hexen disc. My apologies.

That's good to hear I had forgot about the long delay that Hexen has.

If you use SID/AID discs the start up delay is even greater than HeXEn - typically for me 45 seconds whilst HeXEn is 25 -30 seconds. Even when you install either on the HDD there is a significantly delayed boot.

I think it may be down to the dummy file used to make the discs more readable across the range of disc drives the Xbox uses. But if it is not then I'd be interested to know myself what causes the delay.

      Hello,
      I recently got two broken Xboxes and was able to build a working console from both.
      The Xbox has a softmod and I'm thinking about flashing the bios. How do I do that best?
      It is a XBOX version 1.4 (Winbond) and I would like to transfer everything via FTP, because I don't have a DVD burner. 
      I have read something about HeXEn and Tsop but I am now rather confused.
      Can I also bottle the Bios over FTP, if so how? 
      Do I have to remove the softmod and is it still possible via FTP after flashing?
      Thanks in advance.

      I have an Xbox 1.0. I have an Xecuter 2.3B Lite+ mod chip (solderless with the pogo pins).
      It was working fine both with or without the mod chip, however I was keen on changing this to a TSOP as the d0 pogo pin can sometimes move out of position causing 3 boots then FRAG (Christmas Lights). Through a combination of bad skill, a bad iron, and bad solder; I managed to lift all of the solder pads in question (R7D3 and R7R3), plus one of the alternate solder points to R7D3.  See the attached images of the board with the lifted pads highlighted.
      Now without a mod chip, it Christmas Lights. I wasn't expecting this as I thought lifting the solder pads wouldn't actually cause any issues (since they are all at the end of a trace rather than in the middle), just prevent me from performing a TSOP.
      With the mod chip it still works fine. Also strangely if the mod chip is switched to Disabled, it now boots the mod chip. My understanding is that this indicates there is something so screwed with the TSOP that it's booting from LPC even without d0 being grounded.
      I'm wondering if there is anything that can be done to repair the TSOP here? I have checked every trace I can in the vicinity with a multimeter and they all seem to have continuity. The R7D2 resistor seems to still be connected just fine. There are a few traces I can't really check as they go under the Nvidia chip.
      Or am I best to give up on the TSOP and get an Aladdin XT-4032?
